Thunderstorm and Haircuts

More laundry, light housecleaning then time working on my blog made up my morning. Our neighbors let us use their clothes dryer (attached to their ladder), for John’s pants. I got them inside (dry) minutes before the big rains started. John reshuffled some basement items, then enjoyed DVR taped shows.

The heavy rain poured down after lunch for about an hour while we enjoyed more of our DVR tapes. All this TV sure seems to lessen our card games and walks I think…. Once the rain was definitely gone I got my haircut, then I cut John’s hair. That felt SO good-we’d really let it go too long.

For supper John got out the grill for hamburgers. I grilled my green beans from the strawberry farm. We’re trying to cut back our calorie intake from the cruise. Amazing how easily your stomach can get accustomed to a higher intake, how you have to concentrate adjusting to less.

A treat from our neighbors, a baby tortoise has begun creating his own little home.

About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
